Kent’s new head coach, Jimmy
Adams, is primed to take up his position at St Lawrence next week

chief executive Jamie Clifford after successfully completing all
the checks and is expected to fly from Kingston, Jamaica, early

they would be flying out to Antigua in March for a 10-day training
The county decided against
travelling to Dubai again, as they did in pre-season last year
because there are several other clubs and national teams due to
train there in the next couple of months.
Mr Clifford said: "We checked
Jimmy was comfortable with the move and his knowledge and contacts
with people at that end was a big factor in us choosing to go
there. It helps having someone so well known."
Elsewhere, Kent fast bowler Matt
Coles has been called into the England Lions squad for their tour
of Sri Lanka and the UAE. The seamer replaces injured Surrey fast
bowler Stuart Meaker.
Coles is not the only Kent
player abroad – all-rounder Darren Stevens is featuring for the
